Sansad Bharat Darshan is an educational & experiential tour, absolutely free of cost, for the meritorious & outstanding students of Hamirpur Parliamentary Constituency in order to give them a platform for enhanced practical learning while traveling and exploring the various facets of the country.
As you would agree that today, travel and tourism are an integral part of learning. The need for the right kind of exposure, understanding regarding education standards and curriculum being followed elsewhere, etc., becomes a source of inspiration and learning for most of the students.
The parliamentary constituency of Hamirpur is amongst the most literate constituencies across India. The constituency comprises the districts of Hamirpur, Bilaspur, Una, and parts of Kangra and Mandi.
However, the state of Himachal Pradesh is a special category state. That means the citizens here lack the exposure to new knowledge base that is otherwise found at the globalised metropolises around the world and in India.
Hence, this initiative to tour the meritorious and outstanding students of the constituency to various academic, corporate centers, cultural and heritage sites, meeting with dignitaries, to help expose them to a new knowledge base.
This initiative is not just helping the children with personality development, improving soft skills but most importantly the purpose of national integration is one of the key highlights.
